HERRIN. IlL. Sept. 2. (By
The Associated Press.) William
son county tonight is guarding
against a possible resumption of
hostilities. Tomorrow the sworn
enemies the Ku Klux Klansmen.
and antl-klansmen will face each
other- In the Herrin city hall.
The occasion will be the coron
er's Inquest of the shooting affray
here-Saturday noon in which six
men" were killed and several
wounded.; p- '
Sheriff George Galligan said
that he and his witnesses would be
on hand at Marion, headquarters
of the sheriff and the antl-klansmen.
;;; .' .
"We will come armed with "ma
chine guns if necessary he said
"and after the inquest we will go
to the Emlth garage and get the
automobile we went after Satur
day," he added. ' J
State's Attorney Delos Duty
said he would not be present
"If the coroner's verdict is ad
Terse to the klansmen they- would
say I lent my official position to
influence the Juror," Ur. Duty
said. "For that reason I think
It best that I stay away."
Members ot both tactions, as
well as townspeople who declare
themseltes neutral are frankly ex
pressing' doubt as to the peaceful
conclusion of tomorrow proceed
ings. Both sides are armed and
both express the fear "the other
side is out gunning for us."
-Klansmen are frankly skepti
cal "You can't tell about the
jury. If it doesn't look fair and
impartial to us we won't take our
witnesses before," one of the lead
ers said. "Instead we will wait
for action by the grand Jury."
The anti-klansmen are ; not
friendly, they also talk of "frame
ups" and packed Jury boxes.
"Oh horrors!' Did you read the
wonderful scandal they had print
ed about me in the last evening's
Salem paper? - This . is the first
time I hare ever bad any such
stuff printed about me. and I
hope the lasC" a said Charles I
Greenleaf. hiker. ; '
"In the first place this paper
said I was 37 years old. I am
34. ; While I am, to be sure, a
student of human nature, I never
made the statement that -I had
mastered the study of human na
ture. Such a thing would be Im
possible, What I, did say, if any
thing. (I have no recollection of
talking v to any reporter, by the
way) was that I was learning
human nature.- It would be- as
impossible for one to master hu
man nature as it would for him jto
digest a whole library, plus. There
are, however, certain fundamental
principles which mast be master
ed to be able to get along with
everybody. 1 I had - Intended to
write about this in a separate vol
ume, but now that I am called
upon to defend myself against
such libelous stuff I will give a
brief outline to show what I mean
by 'fundamental principles.'
"One of them is the law of pa
tience.' Another is -the law. of ap
preciation. Still another is the
law of love in manifestation,' vis.,
by work.. Yet another is the law
of face analysis. I could give you
a much longer list, but I haven't
room here to go into further de
tail about this. It Is something
similar to the alphabet. Having
the fundamental in mind you can
expand out into an infinite variety
"Concerning the governor, I am
always! very careful to refrain

from making any such comments
as this, paper had in print. I
merely stated that I j was Intend
ing to call upon the governor, and
made no comment upon my busi
ness' with him, which would have
been nothing more or .less than
an -informal call. I i have called
upon very , few , of these: big men,
because I know that their time is
very much taken up with matters
more important. I regret that I
will not have time to see him. .
"Further, I wish to state that
I have not been in a grocery store
since being in Salem, having no
cause to do so, as I buy all my
meals. How then could i hare
frightened a woman clerk in a
neighborhood grocery? j
"And concerning little girls!
This was the worst of all. To be
sure, I take to children as they
do to me.; They are fascinating
In lots tof ways, but this paper
would have the public believe that
X had some evil thought in mind,
which would ' be preposterous. I
did what I have done in lots of
other places asked , them if they
would not like to look at my tent.
And this in the presence of their
mother. : I even asked her to come
over. I suddenly remembered
that I had to go to the postof f ice,
and so that was settled light there.
Peculiar to say that this city is
the first1 one to come out with
anything hut the very best con
cerning me as a hiker. I could
show people a book j full of clip
pings to verify this fact were it
not for the fact that I had sent
it ahead of me to avoid damaging
it; in carrying it in my knopsack.
I have the strictest reeard for
children. Peculiar j to say this
same paper did not j mention the
fact that I saved a girl from get
ting run down by an automobile
within three blocks of their head
quarters. .. , ? j j - .
"I never make mention of such
thigs, feeling that people will
think that I have an head full of
.conceit, f:1-:::: -f j r,:r- '
"I hope that some day there will
be a time when newspapers will
have to be careful how they print
such libelous stuff about one of
whom they know nothing. This is
the ; first town to start anything
so unreal about me, as a hard
walking hiker.. Suffice it to say
that they will not dare; to attempt
to tear another's character to
pieces. I would have ignored
their endeavor to do so save for
the fact that I do not care to have
such rot printed about me or my
character. : - :-v !
i "In my examination of people
clear across the continent and
back, including Florida, I have
found ; few people without some
peculiarities about them. These
I always overlook, j believing in
the motto that 'If a man has nine
good qualities and one bad, look
at the nine; and tf he has nine
bad quarities and one! good, look
at the one good ; , -:
"I know I have plenty, which
I suppose makes one out to be
plumb crazy, lunatic and violently
insane. At least that is what the
paper spoken of would have others
think. ! , i ; --'r ; :.

to observe it and by the time help

such a start, that in spite of all

be fair because then the burden
would fall on those who received

i . Question Out By Hand
LOS v ANGELES, Sept. .1 A
fist fight on the infield interrupt
ed the Sacramento-Los Angeles
game today1 when Charles Pick,
manager of the Sacramento team,
exchanged blows with Umpire
John Reardon after Reardon had
sent Merlin Kopn Sacramento
left fielder, . to the club house
when he disputed being caled out
at first. '
Chairman j H.1 H. Corey of the
public service commission,' in a
statement yesterday declares that
his colleague on the commission
Newton McCoy, v appears to know
no more about maximum distance
commodity rates than he i does
about the Einstein theory.
Corey gave out a statement in
answer to charges made by McCoy
in a minority order in the intra
state farm products rate case. The
McCoy orderj dissented from a ma
jority supplemental order by
Corey and T. K. Campbell, in
which they j Increased the rate!
over those made in the original
order, but kept them lower than
those now in effect on Oregon
rallroads. : The carriers had ap
pealed the cake to the circuit court
for Marion j county, which sent
back the order to the service com?
mission with' further testimony.
The case has not yet been dis
posed of by the court. : ; i
"Commissioner McCoy's state
ment in his dissenting opinion in
the farm products rate case does
not conform to the facts," declares
Corey. "He states that he was not
present at either of the confer
ences between the traffic agent
of the rail road 'a office and thi
commission. j j
"The fact Is. that the first eon
ference referred to was held , in
Mr. McCoy's office at the request
of the railroad officials. Mr. Mc
Coy participated in the discussion
relative to a compromise adjust
ment in the rates contained in this
commission's order which was re
turned by the circuit court of
Marion county, with new and ad
ditional testimony for 1 further
consideration by this commission.
This procedure is in conformity
with the law and does not subject
the circuit court to the unjust
criticism and inferences contained
in the minority order. Mr. Mc
Coy refused to participate in the
second conference, which was . a
continuation of the first, called
at the request of the commission.
However, there was nothing ma
terially different 'presented at the
"This 'tempest in a teapot' has
arisen by reason of the fact that
Mr. McCoy seemingly knows no
more j about maximum distance
commodity rates than . he - knows
about Einstein's theory. Had Mr.
McCoy taken as much trouble to
study the majority order as he did
his dissenting opinion, possibly he
may have learned that the com
mission has fixed maximum rates
only in its order. The law does
not permit the commission to
make j minimum rates. He also
may have learned that jurisdiction
has. been retained by the commis
sion for the purpose of entering
such furthetuorder or orders with
referenceMtp any and all of the
matters andommodlttes involved
In this proceeding as the commis
sion may hereafter deem neces
sary, j The order further states
that it is to be understood that
the rates herein prescribed and
those heretofore fixed in orders
Nos. 1027 and 1040 are maximum
rates only and that the carriers
will be expected to establish, as
occasion arises, reasonable point-to-point
commodity rates on the
commodities here involved for the
purpose of properly taking care ot
specific conditions and movements
requiring said consideration and
that the commission likewise re
serves the right to order such spe
cific point-to-point rates as may
hereafter be found to be necessary.
"The order has not disposed of
the question of. point-to-point" rates
covering actual movements, such
as the : movement of hay from
producing sections to consuming
sections. Mr. McCoy stated in his
dissenting opinion that the major
ity members were governed by
traffic officials of the, railroad
rather than the commission's ex
perts. In this respect we wish to
point out tTTat in the employ of
this commission are three rate ex
perts, two of whom have had
many years experience in the em
ploy of railroads In various sec
tions of the country and the Judg
ment of the majority members of
the commission was fnfluenced by
its traffic experts who have had
practical experience." -
